Event description

Description

As part of the Riverfest Festival Weekend, SwimableLimerick have organised two social swims in the River Shannon.

SwimableLimerick @Riverfest is an opportunity for people to dip their toe (and a whole lot more!) into Limerick's beautiful River Shannon. Our swims take place from the historic Curraghour Boat Club and we provide a fun, relaxed environment for anyone to enjoy the freedom of swimming in the open water.

You will be swimming in the heart of medieval Limerick and will experience some stunning vistas of the city from the River Shannon. Our swims start from The historic Curraghour Boat Club which was the exact spot where The Viking landed in Limerick city!

Our swims are all about having fun and enjoying the open water, not about fast times or swimming long distances so feel free to just have a bit of a splash or wade your feet into the water. For those whom would like to swim a longer distance, the swimming area will be confined to a 750 metre area and is an opportunity to see sights such as Thomond Bridge,The Treaty Stone and King Johns Castle from a truly, unique perspective. Swimmers can swim as short or far a distance in the designated area as they choose. All swimmers will receive a custom made SwimableLimerick Swimming Cap that they must wear in the water.

The best of Open Water swimming is the food afterwards. Join us by The Curraghour Boat Club fire for our post swim picnics with good food and company! SwimableLimerick have teamed up with Canteen and The Urban Co-Op for our post swim picnics. In the Boat Club we will be serving hot pittas with homemade choco-nut spread, blueberry drizzle muffins, Rigneys farm granola, The messy Apron Cookies, Ceile Kombucha…and more
